Pro-Life Congressman, Cory Gardner, has been under attack for his views on abortion and his so-called opposition for birth control. Today, Planned Parenthood released their first television advertisement for the 2014 campaign attacking Cory Gardner.

The nation’s biggest abortion business, which receives tens of millions in taxpayer funding, is planning to spend almost $1 million on the commercial. The ad from Planned Parenthood, another version of which attacks pro-life Senate candidate Thom Tillis in North Carolina, says:

plannedparenthood120“63$ a month for gas, 117$ for groceries, and just when insurance is finally covering the cost of prescription birth control, Cory Gardner says no, women should pay the $600 a year. His plan lets insurance companies off the hook in cost Colorado families more. Independent research shows that Cory Gardner isn’t being honest with us and he’s turning the pill into yet another bill.”

However, as a previous LifeNews story reported, Cory Gardner just announced that he believes the pill should be available over the counter without a prescription. But this hasn’t kept pro-abortion groups and Sen. Mark Udall’s campaign from running television commercials against Gardner claiming he opposes birth control as part of some war on women.

What you won’t hear in the television commercial is that Planned Parenthood opposes over-the-counter contraception. This is because they want women coming to them for birth control, and if it fails, going to Planned Parenthood to have an abortion.

In their commercial you also won’t hear that Sen. Mark Udall supports an abortion-on-demand view.

In 2003, Udall voted against ending partial-birth abortion in our country. Partial birth abortion is a procedure where an abortionist delivers a baby’s body, arms and legs, and then inserts forceps into his or her neck to end their life. In other words, everything except the child’s head is delivered, and then the baby is killed. While nearly 70% of American’s believe that this procedure should be banned, and Congress passed it by an overwhelming margin, Udall opposed the ban on four separate occasions.

Sen. Udall has consistently voted no on granting parental consent for minors, legislation that would acknowledge a child in utero as a legal victim, if he or she is injured or killed in a violent crime, and no to protecting babies who can feel pain from abortion. At the very least, our state senator should oppose dismembering fully formed babies, especially since they can feel it.

This record doesn’t even fit the “atypical” pro-choice American. 64% of Americans believe that babies who can feel pain should be protected if the life of the mother isn’t in danger, and according to a Fox News/Opinion Dynamics Poll released in April of 2003, 84% of registered voters agree that an attacker of a pregnant woman should be charged with murder if the fetus is killed.

The fact of the matter is, most common sense oriented people agree that babies who feel pain shouldn’t be dismembered in the final four months of pregnancy; most people believe that if a 15-year-old high school girl wants to have an abortion, she should have parental consent; and most people agree that when a woman is tragically murdered, the criminal should be charged with two crimes.

But public opinion hasn’t stopped Udall from aligning himself with the most radical fringe of the pro-abortion movement. He seems to be more interested in maintaining his close relationship with pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood than voting for the American people. Over the last decade, Planned Parenthood has been under investigation for aiding predators in statutory rape, using our tax dollars to pay for abortions, and mandating that their employees reach abortion quotas. Recently, they’ve even been caught advising young girls to participate in violent sex that includes, horse whipping, rope burns and markings from clips.

Despite Planned Parenthood’s laundry list of illegal activity, Udall has proudly supported the organization on every account. Furthermore, his relentless support of Obamacare, which rations healthcare and authorizes federal subsidies for abortion, proves that he is an extreme, abortion-on-demand Senator, and will not protect the women and children of our state.

When we go to the polls in November, we should remember that if we vote for Mark Udall in Colorado or Kay Hagan in North Carolina, we are voting for Planned Parenthood.
